The factory

The factory z can complete an order in 12 days, factory p in 18 days. For how many days does an order completed when the first two days work only the factory z and then both factories?

Correct result:

t =  8 d

Solution:


t/12 + (t-2)/18=1

5t = 40

t = 8

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
